Marriage Mentoring

January 19th - December 31st, 2021


Marriage Mentoring is a process where key couples in our church have been trained to mentor other couples, especially those in crisis. It is a hands on method of mediation and negotiation, empowering couples to solve their own issues. It is unique in that it's designed to be effective for premarital couples, couples wanting to enrich their marriage and couples in crisis.

Marriage Mentoring is based on biblical principles and provides mentee's with a scripture reference guide in their workbooks.

If you wish to sign up to be mentored please continue with this registration and you will paired up with a couple from our Church. There are two forms that will appear upon completion of your registration, one for the wife and one for the husband. Please print them off, complete the information and then mail them back to the church at 800 NE 6th Ave, Aledo, IL 61231.

Men's Momentum

October 19th - October 21st, 2018


Men do not thrive on bread alone (although the food is great at a Momentum retreat!) Food, fellowship, and spiritual recharging mark these men’s times together. Guests are challenged in their Christian walk, prompting many to make life-changing decisions. We encourage men to lead their families—and ultimately our nation—with deliberate action, resisting the role of passive onlooker. This retreat is designed for men ages 16 and older.

Cost includes conference fee, lodging and meals while at the conference you will need money for 2 meals while on the road. Departure will be from FBC on Friday, Oct. 19th at 10am and we’ll be back in Aledo on Sunday, Oct. 21st in the early evening. Interested? Watch for Sign Up! *The actual cost of the retreat is $150 so if you are able to pay $150 that helps with the FBC budget.
